ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton will contest a court-ordered temporary injunction that sidetracked a planned unionization vote by in-home child care providers.

Dayton’s spokeswoman, Katharine Tinucci, announced the Democratic governor’s decision Thursday in a brief email message. She says the administration will raise its concerns at a court hearing on the matter scheduled for mid-January.

Tinucci did not immediately provide any further details on Dayton’s reasoning. He’d earlier indicated plans to hold off on deciding his next move until after the judge issued a written decision.

Thousands of in-home child care providers were due to receive ballots asking if they wanted to form a union. Opponents argued Dayton exceeded his powers in ordering an election, and a Ramsey County judge issued a restraining order holding off the vote.
